"Like a wildflower; you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would." -E.V • And as a growing artist, I am learning to not compare myself with other artists. I am learning what it means to work at my own pace and to create my own identity as an artist. I learning to experiment with mediums I have never touched before. I am learning that as an artist, risk taking is a key in developing your artistic individuality and freedom. If you don't take risks how can you grow?
